One brand new comparison image locates the UI elements in Apple’s all-new iOS 7 against those of iOS 6, thereby taking the focus off the operating system’s app icon redesign and drawing attention to the toolbar, progress bar, and search bar changes (among others) that have been made in the new mobile OS.

As you can see in the below image, the same kind of minimalistic design changes that have been made to Apple’s built-in iOS app icons also appear throughout the operating system. Besides the toolbar, progress bar, and search bar mentioned above, iOS 7 also adjusts the appearance of the tab bar, the picker, the navigation bar, pop-up notifications, switches, and the slider.

Here’s the image, which reached us via iDownloadBlog:
